The State Law Enforcement Division says a server that houses drunken driving evidence information is running again after spending a month offline.
The agency announced in a statement Wednesday that it has finished restoring all the data on its Implied Consent server. A spokesman said the system went down on July 5 after a lightning strike hit a power transformer.
Spokesman Thom Berry said SLED officials decided to take all of their servers offline for repairs after the lightning strike damaged an interruptible power supply unit. Most servers were back up within a few hours, but Berry said the “Implied Consent” server took longer due to the amount of video and test records it contains.
The Implied Consent server houses all dash camera videos and breath test results from DUI cases dating back to 1991. The SLED statement said no files were lost.
